Zero-G sandbox game Hardspace: Shipbreaker is about to head out of early access.

A new announcement has revealed that the unique FPS is getting its full official launch on May 24, 2022 – two years after it first became available on Steam Early Access.

“Dust off your mag-gloves and charge your split-saw, we’ve got some great news!” reads the announcement. “The date for Hardspace: Shipbreaker’s 1.0 Update, and its full release from Early Access, is set. Your first shift in the full version will begin on May 24, 2022.”

Hardspace: Shipbreaker is a unique spin on the FPS genre as you’re given cutting-edge salvaging tech and tasked with carving up derelict spaceships to recover valuable materials – and it’s all in the name of paying off a billion-credit debt to a faceless corporation.

Playing a blue-collar space worker for the Lync Corporation, there’s no escaping your debt as the company literally owns your DNA – re-assembling you after any unfortunate workplace accidents to ensure you carry on working.

The 1.0 launch update brings with it a number of additions and improvements:

  • Campaign Act Three – The campaign’s final act brings the story to its thrilling conclusion.
  • Save and Load Ships – You can now save salvage that’s in progress, so there’s no need to lose out if you need to step away from the game for a bit.
  • Improved Progression, Economy & Upgrades – All these improvements should help tweak the game’s progression to be more satisfying.
  • Improved Performance & Stability – A number of bugs and performance issues have been solved, allowing the game to run more smoothly.
  • Steam Achievements, Trading Cards, Emoticons, and Backgrounds.

Additionally, progress will be reset on launch day to ensure everyone officially starts the game on equal footing.

“After nearly two years in an incredibly fun and successful Early Access run, we’re unbelievably proud and excited for Hardspace: Shipbreaker to reach Full Release,” the team explained. “As always, we owe a massive billion-credit debt to our Early Access community for supporting the game and helping shape and improve it. Shipbreaking may be a one-person job (as dangerous as that may be), but it took all of you to help us get to this point.”

Hardspace: Shipbreaker is available on Steam for PC, with PS4 and Xbox One versions reportedly to be made available at a later date.
